You would think that there wouldn’t be much of a challenge to setting a world’s record for most sky divers other than taking a big group up, having everyone jump out, and then complete the jump. But that wasn’t he case with this group of 65 female skydivers, who recently set the record for a vertical head-down jump. It took them 16 tries to get it right, over the course of a weeks time, with the jumpers suffering a variety of physical challenges along the way, including exploding sinuses, hypoxia, multiple mid-air kicks to the head, and rough landings that nearly resulted in broken bones. But, eventually they were able to reach their goal, and as you’ll see in the video below, break the record in the process.
